Places and Other Poems
Published by Two Rivers Press
Creator of the lightly fictionalized region of Wessex, where Reading features as Aldbrickham, Thomas Hardy was a poet for whom ideas of place played a central role in his work . In this new collection of his poems, each selected for its relation to a specific locale, and finely illustrated by Sally Castle, Hardy’s imagination appears most intensely engaged by connections between people and place.
This latest offering from the classic poetry series of Reading’s Two Rivers Press, renowned for the quality of its artistic, design, and editorial standards, promises delights to both eye and mind for all those new to his verse, as well as, of course, for Hardy lovers everywhere.
